    From Hilda Gurney when I was on my schoolmaster saint aka the best horse ever born: SUCH A NICE HORSE! Rider can help more by .....

    Basically, you are riding a wonderful horse, now make sure...

    I think exvet's post is the best, most honest post from anyone that competes.

    I spent years at AQHA shows with a nice horse waiting for people on better horses to make mistakes so I could move...
  3. Let me turn your question around and ask why...

    Let me turn your question around and ask why should a horse with better gaits NOT be rewarded if all else is equal?

    Lilo Fore was asked about breed bias at a CDS symposium within the last couple...

    Are you talking about your breed bias?

    That's a rhetorical question. Certainly we all have preferences.

    Sorry you had a bad experience.

    Just wanted to share that my horse, while a registered warmblood, is half TB. No message there, just an interesting coincidence.
  7. Why are you interpreting a fact as a snide...

    Why are you interpreting a fact as a snide comment? My horse is a bigger mover than those placed above me. The point was to give a real life example of when a bigger moving warmblood was not given...
  8. Not at all, what I'm saying is that without...

    Not at all, what I'm saying is that without seeing the rides none of us know. Without actually asking him why he scored why he did, there is no evidence that it was absolutely breed bias.

    I do...

    Even with the :-)? A little strident aren't we?



    Absolutely true and never debated by me.




    OK, you are entitled to your opinion regarding the definition of "big warmblood movement." ...
  10. So are you saying there was absolutely no...

    So are you saying there was absolutely no difference between the horses other than the breed? I get the frustration, but my point is without talking to the judge, we are all just speculating.

    Welcome to life :-)



    ^^^this is all about gaits



    Lightness and ease of movements = physical ability

    Fair enough, however, we're talking about a dressage competition, not just training the horse.

    Lynn Palm has been quoted as saying "dressage is good for all horses, not all horses are good for...

    Just like any other horse show; it's one judge's opinion at one point in time. That and while there has been much effort made through training to have a common judging standard, there are always...

    ToN Farm, you are not alone.

    If I'm showing in the regional championships, I try to take the entire week before off work so I can get as much practice in as possible. Throughout every ride, my...

    Was it a general comment or related to something specific like gaits? If he was not liking the gaits, that would impact pretty much every.single.box and definitely would drag the entire score down....

    I haven't seen that but have had, while scribing at a schooling show, a competitor come up and ask me his score. Literally, I was scribing a ride at the time. Needless to say, he was very new to...

    By saying I found it interesting, I meant that I was impressed that someone had actually thought about exactly the situation you describe as happening.

    Common sense is apparently not so common in...

    I have the FITS with the perforated deerskin seat and they are somewhat grippy. I have another pair of FITS with the synthetic seat and let me tell you sister, those things are TOO grippy for me. I...

    I don't believe there is any such rule. I did a quick search through the USEF DR rules and the only references I found to scribes were about things like having a scribe for each judge and the...

    One of my horses has very prominent withers. He has a Trilogy saddle that has extra gussets in the back to help level the saddle.

    Yes, it would be nice if there was no gossiping in life in general, but that's a pipe dream. Do people mind if scribes repeat positive things?

    While it was unfortunate that the previous thread...

    You've already gotten great advice so I'll just add that you are a wonderful horse owner to be thinking about this. It's easy to keep putting "the decision" off, what's hard it is to do what's right...
